Just like you can make holiday decorations, you can also make a last minute Christmas gift yourself with art! Using puff paint, wax paper, and glue, you can effortlessly create someone’s favorite quote. See how to do it here! Another option is easily transferring a photo onto a canvas with a gel medium, a paint brush, and a spray bottle. You can do the same for lamps, tiles, and mason jaws. Your art work is a more thoughtful gift than a simple picture in a frame. So get creative, and create your last minute Christmas gift in under a day!

Last Minute Gift Ideas: Subscriptions

Even if it’s a last minute gift idea, they’ll be feeling the love for months to come with a gift subscription! This can be anything that the recipient is interested in. Subscribe them to their favorite magazine, perfume, food, flower, clothing, or coffee. If they’re into beauty and makeup, a great option is the Birchbox gift subscription. This box features skincare and makeup picks from your favorite beauty brands. You get to pick the curated box to start, and then they can take control of their own monthly samples after that! We suggest you choose 3 months to start, and let the person decide how long they want to continue it for when it’s in their hands.

Last Minute Gift Ideas: Food

Whether you make it yourself or order it, food is always a winner as a last minute Christmas gift idea. For someone on a health kick and wants new recipes, HelloFresh delivers ingredients and recipes to the recipient for healthy meals every week, right at their doorstep. Blue Apron is a similar service with the same features for someone who may need some help in the kitchen. On the other hand, everyone loves some baked goods. Make special Christmas cookies or desserts and wrap it nice for the perfect last minute gift!

Last Minute Gift Ideas: Tickets

With the growing trend of experiences over “things,” make your last minute gift idea around that. There’s no matter gift to give to someone than the gift of a memorable life experience! Research and purchase tickets to an event of their interest. This can be to a music festival, a concert showcasing their favorite band, or their favorite sports game. You can even give them a Ticketmaster gift card to let them make the decision! In addition, this can be an airline ticket to a destination someone always fantasized about. Because who doesn’t deserve a small vacay?
